If a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be frustrating for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and which will match the overall design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up personalized error pages for all of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our cloud website hosting. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
